The debut album by the American rhythm and blues/jazz-funk fusion group, The Blackbyrds, this eponymous release is the product of six full-time Howard
University students taking the direction of department head and jazz great Donald Byrd into the Fantasy Studios along with the aid of production wizard
Larry Mizell (Jackson 5, Gary Bartz). The end result is nothing less than stunning as the band lays down some of the tastiest groove-oriented jazz music
ever recorded. With Joe Hall on bass and Keith Killgo on drums, the rhythm section anchors a solid foundation capable of keeping the dancefloor full and
providing a base for the rest of the band’s soulful explorations. Kevin Toney supplies supple keyboard work and Barney Perry keeps it funky on the guitar,
setting the pace for what would be a genre-defining LP and a breakthrough in jazz-funk crossover. Essential listening for all fans of jazz, funk, and feel good pop music.

Produced by legendary trumpeter Donald Byrd, Unfinished Business, originally released in 1976, features the core group of keyboardist Kevin Toney,
guitarist Orville Saunders, bassist Joe Hall and drummer Keith Kiligo, with saxophonist and flautist Wesley Jackson. A toe-tapping synthesis of all that
was happening in Black music in 1970s electronic jazz, funk and hard swinging R&B, Unfinished Business serves up more of the irresistible formula that
the band struck gold with on their previous album, City Life. A must-have for fans of classic '70s funk, soul, and danceable groove.

City Life, arguably The Blackbyrds’ best album, hit #1 on the Billboard Jazz Chart and #3 on the Billboard Soul Chart upon its original release in 1975.
Produced by legendary jazz trumpeter Donald Byrd, the album showcases The Blackbyrd’s’ unique jazz-funk crossover sound and includes the runaway
hits "Happy Music" and "Rock Creek Park," which stand even today as pinnacles of the '70s jazz-funk movement. A testament to its lasting appeal, "Rock
Creek Park" from the City Life album has been sampled numerous times by groups such as De La Soul, Eric B. & Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, N.W.A,
Massive Attack, Ice Cube, Heavy D, Nas and Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five, Tone Loc and most recently, Wiz Khalifa. This often-sublime album
is primed for rediscovery by fans of '70s funk, soul, jazz and fusion.
